You will be sent detailed instructions about how to get to the school from your host family or residential accommodation when your booking is confirmed.
On the first morning, you should arrive at school at approximately 8.45am. Classes start at 9am and, as we don't want you to miss any lesson time, we take you straight to your class. To ensure that your class level is correct, it is very important that you complete our placement test when you book your course.
After the morning class is finished, new students will meet with one of our staff for a short welcome meeting which covers things like;
The school facilities
Fire safety procedures
Computer access and Wi-fi
Glasgow School of English "Learning Zone"
Changing class levels
Booking a trip on the social programme
How to obtain a class book
Purchasing a bus or train pass
Obtaining a UK SIM card
Police registration (if applicable)
They teach you in a good way and make the lessons fun, not boring. The people at Reception are really nice too and the classrooms and facilities are all quite new.
Glasgow School of English is recognised by UKVI as a Tier 4 sponsor to bring students into the UK on Tier 4 General Student Visas under licence number 18EC8KTJ.
